Do Not post e-mail or other personnel information. It could be picked up by spam robots.


Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac=Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

Is the problem still there?

This occurred immediately after Firefox automatically updated me to 5.0.2 so it is NOT a windows problem.

Maybe I should just uninstall Firefox and use another browser.

Explain how a problem with FIREFOX can suddenly be a problem with the OS, when it is the BROWSER that is having the problem, and not the OS?

Do you even realize how ridiculous this sounds?

Those of us with this problem would like it resolved, since it never occurred before now, and clearly has nothing to do with the OS, since the OS didn't change magically overnight.

If you can't solve the problem, then don't confuse us with pointing fingers at the OS.

Now, is there a solution to THIS problem with FIREFOX?

ron240: Why are you even on version 50.0.2? The current version is 52.0.2. Try updating your Firefox to see if that fixes this issue. I think someone else might have this issue as well but they haven't responded with their Firefox version. (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1154471)
